NYC Bucket List Update

Time for a quick update on my NYC Bucket List.
I have 9 days left in New York and a ton to do.

In addition to the list below, I have been trying to spend a ton of time with friends. Which has been wonderful – lots of lunches, movies, Trivial Pursuit, Bananagrams and more – but I am sadly unable to see everyone before I go, which is a hard realization.

Also, Hurricane Irene kinda eliminated a weekend in which to accomplish things – instead I just sat around and watched movies at J & J’s.

What I have accomplished since August 19th….

Shows I’ve seen:

  • Sleep No More (And I’m actually going again… a little obsessed)

Sleep No More: Mask, necklace, candy and playing card after the 8/18 performance

  • The Moth, Story Slam: DRIVE
  • The Judgement of Paris
  • War Horse

Visit these Sites and/or take Photos:

  • Morgan Library – Went with Joe, and it was lovely!
  • Bryant Park
  • read a book in the Rose Room reading room at the NYPL – ended up only spending a brief moment in the Reading Room, BUT the NYPL Celebrating 100 Years Exhibit is phenomenal. Go see it!

  • WD50 – Dessert Tasting Menu

Blood orange curd, thyme, swiss chard, hibiscus

Museums

  • Cloisters – Kaitlin and I explored this past Saturday. Lovely as always.

Beautiful window decal at the Cloisters

  • Met Museum – Had a great time with Alex, who had, shockingly, never been there.

Things that I know, now, are not happening:

  • Bellhouse Music
  • Bellhouse Comedy show (Eugene Mirman?)
  • Carnegie Hall

  • rowboat on the Lake – Turns out the Boathouse and Boat Rentals are on strike, decided not to cross the picket line
  • Brooklyn Museum
  • United Nations
  • Woodlawn Cemetery
